Taylor Swift gives evidence in court in groping case

Taylor Swift gives evidence in court in groping case

Yesterday marked day four of the trial, and Swift took the stand for a cross examination from Mueller's lawyer.

Swift - one of the United States' most successful recording artists, whose hits include "Fearless" and "Fifteen" - spoke forcefully under questioning by Mueller's attorney, Gabriel McFarland.

The actress called Swift - who is the godmother to King's son, Leo - "F-ING BRAVE". "It was just destroying her that she said that", she testified.

"It was intentional", she told the court in Denver, Colorado.

Mueller initiated the litigation, claiming Swift fabricated the groping story and pressured KYGO to fire him. Coomer was the person who talked with Bell that night about what Swift said happened then relayed the information to Call. Mueller was the first to take the stand, describing his encounter with Swift as "weird and awkward".

Swift also explained why her bodyguard at the time, Greg Dent, did not see the alleged assault.

Mueller has sued Swift, claiming he was falsely accused and lost his job.

Mueller was sacked from his $150,000 per year job at KYGO-FM after the singer informed the management about what he did.

The pop superstar testified for about an hour on Thursday, sometimes using unflinching language in giving her account of what happened.

Nakamura Defeats Cena, Will Face Mahal For WWE Title At SummerSlam
In fact, the odds on who will walk out as champion still most favor Mahal, even with Shinsuke favored to win the match itself. To defeat John Cena would be an accomplishment on its own, and with the stakes so high Cena would be at his very best.

Swift's reply: "Your client could have taken a normal photo with me".

Similarly, when two teenagers in Steubenville, Ohio, were found guilty in 2013 of raping a 16-year-old girl, they received an outpouring of public sympathy. While the first days of the proceedings focused on the testimony and cross-examination of her "assailant, ' former #Denver-based DJ #David Mueller, the fourth day went and examined the course of events from Swift's view".

Swift repeatedly said no one else could have groped her. Lena Dunham praised her "fierce" testimony. He also claimed that it was his then-boss, Eddie Haskell, who actually groped Swift after the 2013 concert and that Haskell bragged about it afterwards.

She was also asked why, in the photo that shows her posing with Mueller, the front of her skirt is not ruffled.

"He lifted my skirt and grabbed my bare ass cheek", Swift told the trial.

Taylor's attorney, David Baldridge, said he plans to ask for a ruling that Mueller did not prove his case when court reconvenes Friday afternoon.

David Mueller maintains his stance that the allegation against him is false.

The photographer who took pictures at the meet and greet also testified in court spoke in favour of Taylor Swift telling the court that she thought Swift had made a amusing move during the photo, at first believing she had tripped.

Swift counter-sued, alleging sexual assault. He stayed latched on to my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him.

"It was a definite grab".

Very proven, the mother of Taylor Swift, very close to her daughter, delivered a powerful testimony reported by the New York Times: " She (Taylor) could not believe the thanking came after he had put the hand to the buttocks. "A member of the singer's security detail later confronted Mr Mueller about the incident, and Ms Swift filed a complaint with the radio station". The tragedy is a culture that continues to treat sexual assault as an act of little outcome. Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts'.
